Class Description

An NSDataLinkPanel is an NSPanel that allows the user to inspect data links. The NSDataLinkPanel functions primarily by sending messages to the current data link manager (representing the current document) and to the current link (representing the current selection if it's based on a data link). Thus, the panel should be informed, by a setLink:manager:isMultiple: message, any time the selection changes or a document is created or activated. Since the selection may need to be tracked even before the panel is created, this message can be sent to either the NSDataLinkPanel class or the shared instance.

The NSDataLinkPanel is generally displayed using NSApplication's orderFrontDataLinkPanel: method. An application's sole instance of NSDataLinkPanel can be accessed with the sharedDataLinkPanel method.
